David Ray Griffin Answers Critics of the 9/11 Truth Movement
The purpose of Dr. Griffin’s talk is to introduce his new book, “Debunking 9/11 Debunking: An Answer to Popular Mechanics and Other Defenders of the Official Conspiracy Theory”, due out in May, 2007.
The defenders of the official 9/11 conspiracy theory have reacted to a May 2006 Zogby Poll which showed that 42% of Americans reject the official theory, and have responded by producing a variety of publications designed to debunk the evidence of the 9/11 truth movement.
Dr. Griffin, in turn, applies his logical and philosophical rigor to the shifting accounts from the U.S. Dept. of State, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Vanity Fair, the New York Times, Time Magazine, and others, adeptly reversing their claims that the 9/11 truth movement (backed by many scholars and military and intelligence insiders) is irrational and unscientific. The inescapable proof from firemen, police and air traffic controllers is that 9/11 was an inside job.
Dr. Griffin has written four earlier books meticulously analyzing 9/11 evidence: “The New Pearl Harbor” (2004), “The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions” (2005), “Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11” (2006) and, “9/11 and American Empire” (2006, with Peter Dale Scott). He received the Helios Foundation Award in 2006 for the first two of these books.
Author of over 30 books and 180 scholarly articles, Griffin is one of some 60 theologians worldwide included in the prestigious “Handbook of Christian Theologians” and received the Book Prize of the Scientific and Medical Network in 2000 for “Religion and Scientific Naturalism” (2000).
